LIVING IN STREETSVILLE

 

The Welcome to Streetsville sign situated on Mississauga Road proudly pronounces Streetsville as “The Village In The City” of Mississauga. “Over 300 shops and services to services to serve you ! Small town history in every step you take”. This depiction is a fair one. Streetsville is indeed a picture postcard community that has maintained its rural charm despite the urban encroachment on its doorstep. Queen Street S. the main road through town is lined with historical houses dating back to the 1800s. These heritage homes are now largely occupied by mom and pop businesses. Streetsville’s old houses, churches, cemetery, the Reid Mill and the train tracks, all add to the aura of this quaint village. Streetsville is bordered by the railway and Go Train service to the south and the beautiful Credit River valley to the north. The Streetsvile arena complex that includes the Hazel McCallion community hall all is one of the nicest neighbourhood facilities in Mississauga. Streetsville residents celebrate their community each year at The Bread and Honey Festival which is held during the first weekend in June. This is a not to be missed event with live performances, carnival rides and games and food for the whole family.

 

HISTORY OF STREETSVILLE

 

In 1819. Timothy Street financed the survey of what is now Streetsville. Street would later operate Mills on the Credit River and become a key cog in Streetville’s ascent to prominence. When the local post office was opened in 1829 it adopted the Streetville name in honour of its founding father Timothy Street.Industry continued to flourish in Streetville through the early 1800s culminating in Streetsville’s official incorporation as a village in 1859, followed by its incorporation as a town in 1862. Alas, the good times and heady days were not too last as the vital railway lines that began to emerge in the 1850s would bypass Streetsville. By the 1900s Streetville had taken on a new identity as a tight knit rural community fuelled by small businesses and was no longer a mill town. In 1974 Streetsville amalgamated with neighbouring municipalities to form the City of Mississauga. Today, Streetsville has the largest concentration of historic buildings in Mississauga. It has not forgotten its small town roots and its citizens are proud to call this community their home.
